Amazing vocal acting!!

If you could sum up Holmes and Watson: An Evening in Baker Street in three words, what would they be?

Outstanding Voice Talent


Who was your favorite character and why?

All of the characters were great, thanks to the extraordinarily talented Kevin Theis. I have seen him on stage twice, and listening to this book on Audible cemented the opinion that he is able to transform into the character, not just read dialog.


Which character – as performed by Kevin Theis – was your favorite?

Any character Kevin does comes to life. His performance here was flawless.


If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

"Kevin Theis IS Sherlock Holmes!" A Tour de Force, truly a watershed acting event. Epic! A must see! Siskel & Ebert would give two thumbs up!

Best narration by far!

What made the experience of listening to Holmes and Watson: An Evening in Baker Street the most enjoyable?

The outstanding voice work by Kevin Theis made this a truly delightful experience. I've listened to many books on Audible, and Theis is, by far, the best narrator and actor I have heard.


Who was your favorite character and why?

Holmes was probably my favorite character, though there were so many others, it's a tough call. Wiggins and Inspector Robertson were fun - loved their accents!


Have you listened to any of Kevin Theis’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes, several others. This was one of his best because of his incredible voice characterizations and accents. It was almost more radio play than narration. You had a sense of being in the room with the characters.


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The ending of the "Loch Ness Affair"... "But, Mr. Holmes... Dr. Watson... the paddle steamer did not run, yesterday evening." Cue sinister organ music. Very humorous.


Any additional comments?

A very charming story, made thoroughly enjoyable by Kevin Theis' expert narration.
